This week we focus our lens on Joseph Gibson, an individual who describes himself as "home-free" -- choosing to live on the streets -- and his occupations of the Ashland Downtown Plaza, Triangle Median, and Police HQ undertaken with support from a local Housing Now group. The purpose of this demonstration, which is ongoing as of our uploading this video, is to protest the City of Ashland's no-camping ordinance, the police's treatment of the homeless population, and the lack of adequate shelter and affordable housing in the Rogue Valley.
